Trump Just Made Another Insanely Bizarre Accusation Without Any Evidence
Donald Trump accused former President Obama last month of wiretapping Trump Tower prior to the election, a claim that had no evidence and was proven false.
On Wednesday, Trump spoke with the New York Times and told them that he thinks former National Security Adviser Susan Rice may have committed a crime when she reportedly attempted to uncover the identities of Trump transition team members whose conversations with foreign officials were incidentally collected during routine intelligence-gathering.
“I think it’s going to be the biggest story,” Trump said in an interview in the Oval Office. “It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time.”
Trump’s accusation comes with no sort of supporting evidence. Rice did deny having done any such thing.
“The allegation is that somehow the Obama administration officials utilized intelligence for political purposes,” Rice said on MSNBC on Tuesday. “That’s absolutely false.”
Rice obtained intelligence reports that “were summaries of monitored conversations — primarily between foreign officials discussing the Trump transition, but also in some cases direct contact between members of the Trump team and monitored foreign officials,” Bloomberg’s Eli Lake reported on Monday.
Trump keeps making false accusations and it raises a huge concern about the presidents mental state of mind.
